Favorite 100 Songs List: 30-21

30. Miss You: Rolling Stones; 40 Licks A bluesy honky tonkish song with great lyrics. I love Puerto Rican chicks. Definitely, by far, my favorite Stones song (not really a huge fan). The only problem is that the version on this CD is cut short by about a minute and a half, anyway still a great song. Anyone know how old Mick and Keef are? They probably need to stop touring.

29. Lemon: U2; Zooropa I don't want to get on my U2 high horse again, but seriously go listen to this album again, so good. Bono goes for the falsetto delivery here, and it works. Yet again I'll mention that I wish U2 would have stayed the course with albums that sounded more like this and Pop. This sounds like it could have been a Pet Shop Boys song or something.

28. Peg: Steely Dan; A Decade of Steely Dan A really happy sounding song, about some chick named Peg. This is one of those songs that I immediately play over after it's finished. Becker and Fagan manage to make this a really commercially funky sounding tune, not an easy feat.

27. Summer Teeth: Wilco; Summer Teeth A happy sounding song that is really messed up lyrically. The guitar, the organ, piano, birds tweeting, etc. really combine to make this a perfect pop tune. I think this song is very Beatlesesque. This is also my favorite Wilco album, just beats out Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

26. Push: The Cure; The Head on the Door Yet another masterful 2-minute musical lead-in, as I mentioned earlier, no one does this better than The Cure. This song is kind of simple but very addictive (listening wise). Also a great Robert Smith "Oooooowww" scream in it, gotta love those.

25. Mutilated Lips: Ween; The Mollusk "Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist of the worms like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind I'm fine excepting only fresh brine you can get another drop of this yeah you wish" (breathe). This song is the highlight of the ocean based album. These dudes rule.

24. Electric Relaxation: A Tribe Called Quest; Anthology As far as rap goes, these guys are second only to Outkast in my book. The production, the rhymes, every element of this song is "tight". I would put more lyrics, but I just did that for the previous song.

23. Death of a Party: Blur; Blur Graham Coxon steals the show here, with nice backing from a whacked out organ. Albarn's lyrics are also outstandingly depressing, I think most of the band were alcoholics around the time of this release. The ending is a chill inducer. An often overlooked song, from a superb album, so much more than Song 2 on this release.

22. Policy of Truth: Depeche Mode; Violator Classic song from a classic new-waveish, gothish album. Enjoy the Silence and Personal Jesus get more pub than this song, but I like this one the best. This is a true story, I was bored at school last year and I was looking through some of Rolling Stones archived reviews and Kurt Loder reviewed this album and gave it 2 out 5 stars!!! What a fucking douche-bag.

21. Supersonic: Oasis; Definitely Maybe I remember the first time I heard this song, sophomore year of HS, driving in my Taurus. I thought to myself, "Fuck yeah man, these Brits are Ok, this song kicks ass, Gin and Tonics are cool and shit!" Still my favorite song from the drunken fighting brothers Gallager.

Right on, man! Great list--I'm a huge fan of Steely Dan...probably too much.

I'm getting a top of the 90's list ready to spill sometime next week...I'd like to hear what you think--we seem to have a lot of music in common.

Keep fightin' the good fight!

Damn good list. Great Stones pick.

On the tour that Wilco opened for R.E.M., they came through Texas and played San Antonio. The night before the show, Wilco played a surprise show at Antone's in Austin. They billed themselves as the band, Summerteeth.

Hello I must say this is a very nice blog you have here and the comments are very interesting as well. Being an internet afficionado I am constantly seeking out new sources of information like this one. While I am currently doing some research, I would also like to intimate the readers of this blog about the ongoing drive to sell out the internet to the big communications companies. I am part of a pressure group that would appreciate it if readers would help spread the word about this so we can maintain the intergrity of the internet as a free resource for the world. Thanks for helping to spread the word and being a resource for my work. Cheers and keep up the good work.
